Supervision in Prison

Liaison with prison staff and contact with designated offenders during sentence is important in monitoring progress and planning for release.

The Offender Manager will be considering any risk posed to the community and where risk is high, will be identifying those responsible for supervision  within the National Probation Service. The Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) will be invoked and arrangements made to protect individuals, and similarly with the Child Protection agencies. Pre-release assessments will be prepared on requests made for Release on Temporary Licence (ROTL), or on the suitability of Home Detention Curfew (HDC). Parole Reports are prepared for the Parole Board.
